to louisiana to california and alaska. we solicited comments from the public and all interested parties. we received over 400,000 comments on that plan. that led to the march 31 announcement which the president and i made and we set forth a new framework with respect of development of oil and gas in the outer continental shelf. we said that with respect to the arctic areas of america that we needed to develop additional information and science and information with respect to oil spill response to reach back into 2007 and made the determination that bristol bay meant that blaze had to be protected into the future. with respect to the pacific, based on one of the actual factors in the business of the state and ecological values in the pacific, we said it was off- limits to development and with respect to the gulf of mexico, we look at the central and western gulf of mexico and given the position of the infrastructure and level of environmental information, we decided that was an appropriate place to move forward with respect to oil and gas. with respect of the eastern gulf of mexico coast of
wants. in alaska soon to be former senator lisa murkowski has decided not only is she not going to shake hands, she is not even going to quit playing. lisa murkowski lost in the republican primary to a tea party backed candidate named joe miller. lisa murkowski pointedly did not endorse mr. miller. now senator murkowski has told the associated press that despite losing that primary she is not a quitter and that she is, quote, still in this game. it appears senator murkowski is testing the idea of running against joe miller again. this time perhaps on the state's libertarian party line. supporters of senator murkowski reportedly met with officials from alaska's libertarian party over the weekend to ask about the possibility of her becoming the libertarian candidate. the libertarian chairman later telling the anchorage paper that senator murkowski might as well try to climb mount mckinley. get out the ice axes. the ap now reporting that alaska's current libertarian candidate sat down today with senator murkowski to talk things over. he sounds like he may be open to giving up his spot on th
that in alaska, the federal government could play a leading role in the response? >> you raise a great question. i agree -- one of the other panelists says it's not just the coast guard that response out there. it's going to be a joint effort and industry has to have that baseline of capability in place in order to respond. the coast guard is designed so it can rapidly flow to a region. we have airlift and i feel we can respond when called. that is the coast guard's role, to be ready to respond. we have been doing a number of things in the past three years -- something called operation arctic crossroads which has been looking forward operating locations throughout the state. in 2008, we looked at barrow, in 2009, we looked at nome. we have been testing up there and we see how our c130s perform up there. we have tools and we are actively testing them to see how they perform. we also have the high latitude mission analysis study that we have completed and in its -- and as in the process of reviewing in the agency. we are moving forward, leaning forward pretty hard and working to get that infrastr
on the politics up in alaska about lisa murkowski concedin conceding, joe miller is the candidate for alaska. we're going to dig deeper on the republican side, at least, on what president obama said about the mission in iraq, afghanistan, tough times here at home. as soon as they come in, new data on where hurricane earl is headed. a monster storm now. where on the east coast the cat 4 storm could hit. details from chad ahead. >>> com takes a dangerous turn, mandatory evacuations order ford portions of north carolina, as the cat 4 storm whips toward the east coast. federal emergency teams in place, we're told, bracing for the worst. chad meyers joins us with an update from the national hurricane center shortly. first, tonight's other important stories. the "360 bulletin." rough weather in the gulf is delaying bp's efforts to kill the damaged oil well. officials planned to replace a blowout preventer. a crucial step in permanently sealing the well. however, according to authorities, winds may ease by the weekend for work to continue. >>> and chile, the drilling is under way in the effort to reach
of the republican party and the establishment. that is in kentucky, "national enquirer", alaska, delaware and other instances -- nevada, alaska and delaware and other instance . you could put in rumor to bed. you may have played a role in early of bridging the gap with? any truth to -- to that? >> when i checked with senator cornyn he said that was wrong. he acted promptly within minutes they corrected that report. senator cornyn was committed to helping christine o'donnell win as he's committed with angle, paul and everybody. he and mitch mcconnell have been great troopers. they've jumped in to book won the primary. here you have a republican party for the first time since 1930 has out-voted the democrats in the primaries. this has not happened in 80 years and we are supposed to be worried? republican party in which grass roots candidates think of nikki haley in south carolina indian-american woman wins the republican nomination in south carolina and we are supposed to feel bad? you have a candidate for nevada sandoval, a great latino. of course what is the left gonna do? what if latinos win the g
in alaska, i don't know if-- intellectually you can understand this, but until of' actually flown there, you have no idea how far away alaska is. i'm up in alaska and i've been hired by a company to give a speech and sarah palin calls and she says, hey, i'm going to be in town, do you mind if i introduce you? i'm like, no, that'd be great. she did it because she's a friend. she went and she introduced. she didn't ask for any fee or anything else. i apologized to her because this thing turned into a nightmare and it's me doing my job. i go and i give a speech and people pay me for, i know, crazy, people pay me to speak and people pay to come and hear me speak. it's great. so, first when this was announced i think a couple days before i went on vacation, the media started in that palin and beck are going to announce that we're running. yeah. don't be afraid america, me in the oval office, things are going to change. no, we're not running, no. but the media had to run with that. they had all kinds of things they were saying. then it was the hate tour. and then they finally found into something,
. in alaska, they decided not only is she not going to shake hands, but not only going to quit playing. lisa lost in the primary to a tea party-backed candidate. they did not endorse mr. miller. now the senator told the associated press that despite losing that primary, she is not a quitter and still in this game. it appears they are testing the idea of running against joe miller again. this time perhaps on these state's libertarian party lines. reporters met with officials from alaska's libertarian party to ask about the possibility of beinging the candidate and telling the anchorage paper that the senator might as well try to climb mound mckinley. get out the ice actions. alaska's current candidate sat down with senator to talk it over. he may be open to giving up his spot on the ballot if he told the alaska dispatch that the republican senior senator agrees to be the libertarian senior senator with sincerity and for real. trying to understand what that might mean, i spent quality time with the campaign website which is david for alaska.com. honestly i'm not sure what a lisa conversion to
